so yellow

American Apparel tee; Vintage skirt and bag; Sportsgirl belt; Cream flats (not shown)

If you want a break from the creams and pastels dominating summer fashion, try working some citrus brights into your outfit. A dash of yellow here, a pop of orange over there, maybe even some lime green, and you’re on your way an eye-catching summer look. If you’re feeling brave, why not try your hand at colour blocking? If you’re after a more subtle look, pair your brights with a neutral colour and you’re good to go. Then head to your local greengrocer/supermarket/whatever, hang around the citrus stands and pretend that you’re part of the display (joking, however if you do take that literally – please take photos and publish them on the internet because that would be ridiculously awesome).

    Ahh I love how you mix colours in your outfits, the skirt is too awesome for words.

    & If you like the pom pom dress, I believe I saw it at half price on the UO site, if you can order from the Europe section.

    This outfit is wonderful. I love how you paired it with a simple gray tee. FTW!

    I really just adore the stylish simplicity to your outfits! The yellow of the skirt is just gorgeous aswell and it goes so nicely with your skin and hair colour; you look like a sunflower!

    This also makes me feel really silly for overlooking the versatility of a simple tshirt. I just started a new job in a cafe and Im sure it would shock most people to know that I actually had to buy some black tshirts because I didnt own a single one!!

    Merry Christmas! xx

    So summer-y and fun! I've been wearing a lot of longer skirts of late. Easy, breezy, flowy…what's not to love?! And your fringe looks really nice! I think I'll have to get mine cut again…maybe in winter 😉

    @Vicky: the edging does add that extra something, doesn't it?

    @curiousconstellation: haha, do take photos!

    @rosanguyen: why thank you! Maybe next time I'll try wearing a crown of flowers in my hair to channel that extra fairy-ness.

    @rebecca: do it! do it!

    @Hiroko: thanks for the tip! I'll see if it's the same from the Australian section. Here's hoping!

    @Hannah: be warned – once you start buying basics you can't stop. Well in my case anyway haha

    @Ivania: hysterical is the perfect way to describe some of the brighter colours out there!

    @lavelle: I did have that collection in mind when I chose the grey tee. Good spotting!
